Who starts school tomorrow?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Anyone else out there that starts school tomorrow? College, high school, whatever?
post #2 of 41
I started school last Monday, but then again I never really had a summer break. The program I'm in doesn't do summer breaks. Just 1 week in between Spring and Summer and 1 week between summer and fall and 1 week between fall and spring semesters.

my wife starts teaching her first classes as a professor of english tomorrow. she's very excited (and a bit nervous, of course). if any of you ever hated english, i just wish you could have had my wife teach it. hell, i wish i could have learned it from her... i can't say enough about how well she's gonna turn out.

I started off as an English major. No school for me. They're setting me up to teach "RTT" students sometime in the near future. Oh I may get an academic appointment some time soon too.

I was given a choice of going back to lecturing at university or swimming with a school of dolphins...

Pretty obvious which one I am going to "dive" into.

Lectures MWF and labs on TuTh for me.

Electronics
Engineering experimentation
Digital signal processing
Communications systems

This DSP class relies on Matlab, so it's fortunate there's an OS X version.

I start on September 2nd.

Sorry for being dense. I don't get your point. I said it is fortunate that I have a version of Matlab that works in OS X.

Are you trying to point out that it actually uses X11 and not Aqua?

Started last Monday. I'm not taking many classes. Just taxometrics and a supervision class. The rest of the time I can use to post he... err, work on my dissertation...

I'm sorry I misread. How do you find the Mac OS version. I've heard from a hardcore Matlab user that the x86 version of Matlab is very optimized (win or linux) and thus the others take a hit. Have you notived that?

Well, it's quite apparent that you never recieved an education of any sort...'cause after all, working at McDonalds isn't exactly anything you have to go to school for.

Only if you work hard for your degree, if not, then it is easy, fosheezee. But then again you don't learn much, except how to manipulate the system to pass, might explain the behaviour in our corporations and government.

There are a couple of ways in which proper punctuation could have been utilized in this sentence. Take notes, class.

I'll have to get back to you on that. With my limited experience, using a PC in class and an iBook 800, the performance is comparable or even a bit faster on the Mac. However, in the CAD lab at San Francisco State, I wouldn't bet that the computers are any faster than 1 GHz Pentiums with limited RAM. (I could be wrong, but I can't check right now.)

From what I remember, I have a bit of trouble printing from my iBook or Cube. I guess since Matlab uses X11, I don't get the OS X print services (such as print to PDF). Since most of my graphs go in documents, I usually take a screen shot.

There are some instructions somewhere (Macintouch?) about modifying the default installation by moving the application into the Applications folder and not using the provided OroborosX window manager. I can find those if you are interested. That way you get Aqua windows instead of OroborosX windows.

It's probably better that they are starting off like that rather than trying to ease you into college studies. Some classes start off as if you were still in high school and make you overconfident.

Matlab had a bunch of print options and I know pdf was one of them. You have to read the print help to get the full gist of it. My best guess is that with Apple's version of CUPs along with Matlabs like for piping stuff through the command line lpr or lp you'd be able to get it to work somehow? Using CUPs may be too much. Maybe just getting lp or lpr to work with a ps or a pdf would do it?

yea, lol, i guess


im sure its just a bit of first day shock and as i get a week or two into it i'll make the adjustments. right now its just reallllly overwhelming and i feel so disorganized and i hate that feeling since im usually an organization freak.

doesn't help that i don't have my textbooks yet...err

I only have 1 textbook this semester. But I can't afford that right now 'cuz I had to put new tires on my car, the old ones were about to get me killed in the rain.

I start my 1st year of Uni on the 22nd of September. Am kind of a bit anxious about it, but I can't wait to leave home. The best bit is my sister started high school (age 14-18 here in the UK) today and I still have a good few weeks of holiday left.

Thanks for you suggestions. Now that I've comleted my first lab, I've been reminded that the only printing problems I'm having are with graphical output. Text output prints fine and uses the familiar print output window. The graphs are generated in an X11 window, not a MATLAB window, and attempting to print using the X11 window menu generates a .ps file which shows up in the printer job list, but does not produce an output. I'll search MATLAB help again, but meanwhile, screen shots work just fine.

The engineering computer labs are not open yet, so I can't give you the data on the school computers (i.e., so you know what I'm comparing my iBook performance to).

I obsessively make lists.

Pages to read: over 1000
Pages of Papers to write: over 80

I use iCal to list the due dates of all important papers, tests, projects, meetings, deadlines, etc. Lists help me to visualize my total course load-- so I know that I have "this many" papers due "this month." I have an idea in the back of my mind that I am "okay" or "not okay"-- even though a general sense of panic remains no matter what I do, lol.

It's only 15 weeks-- but it's intense!

Same... I start September 22nd at Columbia College Chicago. I am moving into my apartment the 20 of Sept, so not much time!

Kind of weird with all my friends starting tomorrow and gone!
